Input value is never used

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

This macro compiler hint occurs if you declare a variable in the input section of a macro, but never use it anywhere in the macro.

 

This hint can be the sign of a simple oversight, a variable you meant to use but finally did not need, as is the case in the example below.

 

input

 nNewDate

var

begin

 if WeekdayOf(n_TokenDate) <> 7

         sRESULT = 'Monday to Saturday'

 else

         sRESULT = 'Sunday'

 endif

end

 

However this hint can also indicate that there are loose ends in your macro. For example you started to add a feature to your macro, added a variable and then were distracted and forgot to write the code that was meant to use this variable.
